By
   God is my favorite place

I sleep in her palm.

Her washerwoman hand is full

of crevices in which

I can rest my mind.

Her fingers are the fences

which bar out all evil.

No fear of saturating pain

The thumb and index deter all

bigotry.prejudice.and

superficial beauty.

I am safe.

I am content.

I can sleep.

This is beautiful! It is something that I can relate to and I think others could easily relate to it too if they tried. Plus, there could be many different interpretations. Great! Keep writing :)
